      Published by a major international publisher, Taylor & Francis, on behalf of IWRA, Water International (WI) is a leading source of information on international water resources research and policy. WI articles and technical notes focus on water management, policy and governance based on rigorous scholarship for a broad, interdisciplinary audience.   The continental islands of Australia, New Zealand, and Papua New Guinea support rich natural-resource economies, while the other Pacific Islands rely on their natural resources for subsistence more than economic development.

Uses of water include agricultural, industrial, household, recreational and environmental activities. All living things require water to grow and reproduce. 97% of the water on the Earth is salt water and only three percent is fresh water; slightly over two thirds of this is frozen in glaciers and polar ice caps.

      Water resources assessments (WRAs) are designed to be analyses of available water sources from the perspective of potential water use. Since Rio ‘92, and in particular the Dublin considerations, water resources have come to be more broadly considered within the dimensions of social equity, economics and ecosystem/ecohydrology. We are committed to enhanced sustainability, efficiency and productivity in the management and use of water resources. Australia faces major challenges in ensuring sustainable water supply in the face of increased climate variability and rising demand for water. In response, the Australian Government provides national leadership in water reform.

They have undertaken seminal water resource assessments for most of Australia’s high priority river basins. Physical features of the water resource The water resource is defined by the catchment areas of the Murray and Darling rivers and their many tributaries.

Comprising 23 main river valleys, the Basin extends over 1 million km2 of south-eastern Australia. The Basin experiences considerable variation in annual inflow to its rivers and over the past Drinking water quality in regional Hunter New England, New South Wales, Australia, Fidelis Godfrey Jaravani, Michelle Butler, Paul Byleveld, David N.
